Legally, the real estate term that refers to the arrangement for the right of one to occupy a dwelling is known as the housing tenure. This excites me. The types of housing tenure do include the owner occupancy, the tenancy, the housing cooperative condominiums( individually and parceled properties in a single building are called condominiums), public housing (where the government pays your monthly rent by taking money out of my pay check), squatting and cohousing.
One of the neat things about real estate is that residences can be classified by if and how they are connected to neighboring residences and land. There are types of housing tenure that can be used for the same physical type. Here is an example. Connected residences might be owned by a single person, a single corporation or single entity of any kind and then they can be leased out or owned seperately with a agreement that actually covers the relationship from one unit to another unit and from one unit to the common area concerns as well.
On the incredible continents of North America and Europe there are several major physical living categories that include:
Attached / multi-unit dwellings:
The apartment – A single unit is generally found in a mult-unit building. The outer limits and boundaries of the apartments are broadly defined by the outer perimater of doors, windows and outer realms of the inhabitable region of the dwelling place. Often this can be seen in the multiple story apartment buildings.
Multi-family house – Often in Tulsa, this is seen as a multi-story detached building where the floor is actually a separate apartment or unit.
Terraced house – This incredible dwelling place is also known as a rowhouse or a townhouse. There is a little held belief that the term rowhouse was originally developed by a French rowteam…however we have no sources that can verify this accusation. In Tulsa and throughout the country, a number of single or multi-unit buildings in a uninterrupted row with a shared wall that has no intervening space is known as a terraced house.
Condominiums – In Tulsa most condominiums are stand-alone buildings or buildings in a complex, somewhat comparable to that of an apartment complex. However because individuals actually own each of the condos, they are generally better maintained and they provide a better standard of living that comparable apartment complexes. In the Tulsa real estate market, there are townhouses or rowhouse style condominiums as well.
Cooperative – In Tulsa these are commonly referred to as a “co-op,” however I would never call them that. These cooperatives are comprised of individuals that each own a share of the property. By buying a share in the cooperative each resident has the righgt to occupy a specific apartment or unit.
In Tulsa there are several other kinds of dwelling spaces including but not limited to the following:
The Semi-detached dwellings – These dwellings are unique in there structure and their appeal.
The duplex – Thes dwellings consist of two units that are shared with one collectively shared wall. If I were a single man, I could see this as a superbly viable option for a Tulsa family.
A single-family detached home – These homes are unique in that they are not very common within northeast Oklahoma. However extensive research into the subject might produce different findings.
Portable dwelling spaces – These places are nice in that they are very “portable.” The location of these homes can be moved from one area to another with little trouble at all. I would not recommend moving one of these Tulsa homes on your own however.
Mobile homes – A mobile home is about as close as many of us will ever get to living within and actual Transformer. As a kid I’m sure you grew up thinking about getting together with Optimus Prime and collaborating on a nice housing situation, and mobile homes make this possible. Your home can move.
House boats – These homes literally float on the water. Although they are not very popular in Oklahoma, and althought a really nice pontoon boat does not count, these homes are making a comeback. I predict that in the future house boats will be very important, like in the movie “Water World.”
Tents – These homes are generally made of plastic or vinyl or another type of “campy” material. Although it is not recommended for families with kids, a tent can provide a very low cost and effective living situation for a single dude on a budget. For around $15.00 quarter, you can live in a tent. I am not sure if Hakee Creek will late you live there long term, but I think that it is worth checking into.
Semi-detached dwellings – By very definition, a semi-detached dwelling is a dwelling that is semi-detached.
How big is my Tulsa apartment?
The size of an apartment or house can really be hard to determine if you are new to the house measuring game. The size of a home can be described using words, phrases, or numbers that are either written down or spoken out of the mouth. These words can desribe the total square footage of the property of the amount of square meters found in the home.
If you are reading this from Europe, I would recommend that you would use meters, if you are from the United States, I would recommend that you would use feet. If you just relocated to Tulsa, Oklahoma after having spent extensive amounts of time at sea, I can see how you might want to describe your overall square footage in leagues or fathoms, but you really should not do that because nearly no one knows the equivalencies that you speak of.
In the contiguous United States and the disconnected two bonus States known as Hawaii and Alaska, this are is said to include that actual area of the “living space.” For example, if you have a garage that is not liveable, then you cannot count this as “living space.” You cannot count your dog’s house as “living space.” You can only count the area that you can actually live in, comprehende?
The “square meters” figure of a house in Europe may actually report that combined and total lving areas of the walls enclosing the home, thus they can include any attached garage and non-living space. Man, are those euros baffled. Thus if you are looking fora house in Europe it is very important to ask them what is the surface definition that they are using.
If you are in the Tulsa real estate market however and you are wanting to quickly determine the total size of the house, you can roughly calculate it by the number of the rooms. A studio apartment actually has a single bedroom in it with zero living space, except for the small possibility of a seperate kitchen.
A one-bedroom apartment has single bedroom with a living or dining room that is seperate from the bedroom. Now as odd as it may sound, typically two bedroom apartments in Tulsa include two bedroom. Three bedroom units include three bedrooms. A bedroom is a defined as a glorious room with a closet for storing your clothes and various other what-not. I am known some guys who have turned their closet into its own ecosytem as well.
